The unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 58 cargo ship launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan Feb. 17 to deliver more than three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the residents aboard the International Space Station. Six hours after it launched, the Progress coasted in for an automatic docking to the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module where it will remain until late August. The Progress was loaded with 1,940 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen, 926 pounds of water and 3,333 pounds of spare parts and hardware for use on the orbital laboratory.
